Vintage unworked linens

I have been given a stack of old linens and knowing how many of my blog readers like to see these, I have cleaned them up and taken photos.  Some of the ladies at the Quilt shop group were keen to take these off my hands! but we'll see.  I'll be keeping the aprons and the crinoline lady doilies of course, but will think about the rest.  Some of them are very faded, so they might be indistinct on the computer, sorry about that.

The cloth below is one of my Peacock collection cloths, and I put it on the kitchen table last week when one of Ken's cousins came over to visit with his wife, who is part Indian, part Malaysian, and she loves anything with peacocks.  She certainly loved this cloth!
